With that out of the way, let’s talk about presales. For most venues we will be having presales exactly like we have in the past: annual subscribers at any tier will be able to get a unique code and a deeplink to the presale using the NYA Tickets page. Your unique code will allow you to buy four tickets to a show — the new wrinkle is that those tickets can only be resold at face value in order to limit scalping. It’s our first chance to try this tech, but we’re optimistic about the balance it strikes between non-transferrable tickets and laissez-faire scalper-bot profiteering.

*The Santa Barbara Bowl will have a unique-code presale, but those tickets will be non-transferrable.

**The Ford won’t have unique codes and will instead have its own presale with venue-specific rules about ticket transfers & resales. Subscribers will need to register an LA Phil account using their NYA email address by midnight Pacific this Saturday, June 10. The Ford will check those registrants against a list of NYA Subscribers (make sure you use your NYA account email address!!!) to determine who will have access to Monday’s presale on their website.

You will be able to buy four tickets across all dates at The Ford — this is a slight variation on our usual four-per-show policy to allow as many subscribers to get seats as possible.

After following this URL you will be led through account creation and pre-sale pre-registration forms. The venue will notify you on the morning of the presale if you’ve passed their verification and will give you further instructions about participating in the presale. If for some reason you haven’t passed, write to us and we’ll try to sort it out.

None of these hoops are meant to keep NYA subscribers out of seats (quite the opposite, in fact!), but this isn’t our first rodeo and we know no system is perfect.

Nota bene: Getting access to these presales does not guarantee a ticket, and if you’re familiar with these venues you may have noticed that most of them are small. Not, you know, Catalyst-small, but small enough that you’re gonna want to be on your toes come Monday.

See you out there. love, NYA
